Eugene O'Neill in Court

Documents in the Case of Georges Lewys v. Eugene O'Neill, et al.


Richard Eaton

This book introduces and reprints the most important documents from the plagiarism case in which O'Neill was a defendant in 1931. It should be of interest to the general reader as well as to the scholar because the documents include O'Neill's own previously unpublished comments not only on the situation and the plaintiff but also on several of his plays - especially Strange Interlude.
Contents: Presents the charges against O'Neill, his publishers and the Theatre guild. Indicates the defense's strategy. Records O'Neill's response, the arguments of counsel, the judge's opinion. Documents the aftermath.
